QUOTES OF THE WEEK 


The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”
Full Embassy statement on 9/11.


"The Obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.”
Mitt Romney


“This is not a response to the administration, to the American people. The cause of the unrest was a video. The reason there is unrest is because of the film. “We have no evidence to suggest a pre-planned attack.”
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney


The Obama/Biden record is truly indefensible. Today, 23 million Americans are out of a job or underemployed, 47 million Americans are on food stamps, and the poverty rate is headed toward its highest point in 50 years. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are the leaders who know we can do better – for the sake of our children and our grandchildren, we must do better.”
Gov. Scott Walker in a statement as Vice President Joe Biden visited Eau Claire to speak on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.


“The teachers average $76,000 a year in the salary. That is the highest of any big city in the country. The average person who pays taxes in Chicago, their average salary is $47,000. Teachers are making 50 percent more than those supporting them, on average They have been offered a 16 percent hike in wages at a time of high unemployment, desperation. And they turn it down. Why? They don't want tampering with the health benefits, and they don't want any system of the teacher evaluation so you can get some idea of who is not a good teacher.”
Charles Krauthammer


And this could be the quote of the year…
